Beauty and Truth in Love' is my third anthology of seventy one lovely amorous lyrics. Since my childhood, I have been deriving much pleasure from literature, especially from poetry. So poetry is my love and passion. Poetry is my soul. The poetry of the English poets (from John Milton to T S Eliot) has influenced my life so much. I am very impressed by the poetry of the Indian poets (from the Sufi poets to Rabindranath Tagore). I can t think of my life without poetry. The world of poetry is totally different from reality. It is filled with beauty, love and happiness. It gives me aesthetic pleasure and infinite joy both of which are not possible to gain in this mundane world. I can easily transport myself to Paradise on the wings of imagination which is the key to my creativity.

My Review

Love is a feeling that will never tire someone. It is an emotion which will never lose its relevance. Let it be towards your spouse ,friends, siblings, parents or offsprings, love is divine. Even dreams are given their share of love. Poet, through a collection of poems dedicates his poetic musings to love. The poetry collection is divided into several parts. Most of the poems are sonnets with seamless rhyming. The poems are simple, yet enchanting. 

Some of the poems are repetitive. The poems bring a smile on your face. The poem dedicated to his daughter brought tears in my eyes because I could see my own daughter in his verses. Read this poetry collection if you love someone, if you had loved someone, if you will love someone no matter how deeply. After reading the poems we will fee only one emotion - Love and love only

About the author

It is said oft that a poet is someone who is a blessed soul. Dipankar Sadhukhan, a teacher and a poet friend is definitely a blessed one for he has been doing what many people find it very difficult to do in our modern hedonistic world. He is searching for Beauty and Truth through his poetic endeavour. But then poetry can never exist without that pursuit. Finding Beauty and Truth and Love is the quintessential element of poesy. Reading his book 'Beauty and Truth in Love' is like understanding various facets of life. While in poems like 'O My Dear Angel, the Source of My Mirth', 'O My Little Princess, Next to Deity!' one finds father's love for his daughter, poems like 'True Love Doesn't Alter with the Course of Time', 'Love Isn't Love When It Wears....' bring out the pains and sufferings of a poet seeing the world being corrupted everyday by forces which are inhuman and ruthless. Interestingly, as a poet can never lead his generation to despair, so Dipankar moves on to uphold the true Beauty of love through his poems which celebrate nature's bounty and abundance. Poems like 'Autumn Has Appeared with Fragrant Flowers' bear testimony to the poet's insatiable romantic quest which tends to be spiritual and rightly so! Wishing all the success to his endeavour.
